Commonwealth Games rugby sevens preview by Ben Ryan

first_img Scrapping Premiership relegation would have positive effect argues Ben Ryan LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There’s no doubt about it, they will play some scintillating sevens on the Gold Coast, which hosted a leg of the series until it was replaced by Sydney. Fiji won the last one there – another clue that come finals day it will be the bright blue Fijian flag hoisted the highest.This article appears in the May 2018 edition of Rugby World magazine. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Commonwealth Games rugby sevens preview by Ben RyanPrior to the 2010 Commonwealth Games, I hadn’t ever coached a team as machine gunners and snipers manned the clubhouse roof to cover each corner of the pitch, but I ticked that box in Delhi. It was a surreal experience, from being in the bowels of the stadium for hours in ridiculous heat waiting to march out at the opening ceremony, to the cheering local crowds, their excitement peaking when the ball was kicked to touch.It was incredibly hot during the tournament, too. The run of the England team I was coaching ended in the semi-finals as we lost to a New Zealand team that included All Blacks Ben Smith, Hosea Gear and Liam Messam.Bernard Foley, Nick Cummins, Nick Phipps, Luke Morahan and Lachie Turner would all become Test stars, having played in the Australian team we beat in the group stages but that went on to win a silver medal.Defending champs: South Africa took gold at the 2014 Games in Glasgow (Getty Images)In the tournament this month on the Gold Coast, Australia wouldn’t have that second chance as it’s only the group winners that progress to the semi-finals. It lessens the tournament in my opinion and it’s a weird decision, considering the women’s event has only eight teams and the top two sides in each group go through to the last four.England have a particularly difficult group with both Australia, currently fourth in the World Series standings, and Samoa, the team that knocked them out in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It’s a tough ask and on current form they will not progress, but they have the players to medal and many have both Olympic and Commonwealth experience, which will make a huge difference.Multi-sport events like this do come with a tonne of distractions and undoubtedly some teams will fall as a result. I have seen teams overeating in the 24/7 food halls or distracted by being in the presence of so many different athletes and nations.The biggest threat in Fiji’s group is Wales, but you would expect the Olympic champions to go deep into this tournament – their first Commonwealth Games since 2006 and their expulsion due to the coup later that year. The debate surrounding Aviva Premiership relegation goes on,… Collapse Opinion: Ben Ryan on the Premiership’s injury crisis Expand MORE COLUMNS FROM BEN RYAN Scrapping Premiership relegation would have positive effect argues Ben Ryan Ben Ryan guided Fiji to gold at the Rio Olympics and here he casts his eye over the contenders for the Commonwealth Games medals on the Gold Coast South Africa have another home nation, Scotland, in their group but you would fancy the winners of the 2014 Games to medal. Finally, let’s look at New Zealand – the most successful nation in rugby sevens. Here, an upset is possible. Canada and Kenya are in Pool C alongside New Zealand and both have the potential to beat them.It’s going to be a cracker of a tournament but a cut-throat one too. Uganda, Jamaica, Papua New Guinea, Zambia, Sri Lanka and Malaysia will all be there, and whilst Uganda will show some flashes of brilliance, don’t expect any acts of giant killing – the gap between these teams and the top ten is just too much right now.Bright sparks: The Australia women’s squad arrive at Gold Coast Airport (Getty Images)The women also make their Commonwealth Games bow and it’s so good that they are alongside the men, after the amazing tournament all the teams had in Rio for the 2016 Olympics.Again, Australia, New Zealand and Canada will be fancied to take the podium, but England, although they have had a poor couple of seasons, do have the resources and players to upset that celebrated triumvirate.My prediction for the men’s event? It’s Fiji for me. They have never won gold in the Commonwealth Games and with their recent World Series win in Vancouver, they have shown their form has returned and their stars are shining.

Apopka beats Dr. Phillips 21-14

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Holds on to thwart Panther rallyAnother classic.The Apopka Blue Darters defeated the Dr. Phillips Panthers 21-14 at Bill Spoon Stadium on the campus of Dr. Phillips High School. The Blue Darters took a 14-0 lead into halftime and held on as the Panthers fourth-quarter rally fell short. Apopka improves its record to 6-1 on the season.It was the third straight win for the Blue Darters over Dr. Phillips – all one possession games ending on the very last drive of the game.After a 55-12 thrashing of Jacksonville Mandarin on Friday night, it didn’t take long for Apopka to pick up where they left off when junior running back  Cornelius Williams took the second play from scrimmage 68 yards for a touchdown. After a Titus Vandiver kick, the Blue Darters took a 7-0 lead after only 26 seconds.The Blue Darters scored again before the end of the quarter when Jackson Darlington hit Jalen Carter on a 22-yard touchdown strike. Vandiver’s kick was good and Apopka ended the period up 14-0.Neither team was able to score in the second quarter, but the Apopka defense was stifling in the first half, sacking Dr. Philips senior quarterback BeSean McCray three times and keeping him off balance throughout.The Panthers never came close to scoring in the first half, but in the second half, they cut the lead in half on the very first drive when McCray avoided an Apopka blitz and hit senior running back Devodney Alford who ran 45 yards for a touchdown. Senior kicker Sterling Stockwell’s extra point was good, and Apopka’s lead was cut to 14-7.However, the Blue Darters answered right back with a seven-play, 80-yard drive that featured a 50-yard run from sophomore running back Akeem Brown. Williams scored his second touchdown on the night from four yards out, and after another Vandiver kick, Apopka led 21-7 with 4:56 remaining in the third quarter.Midway through the fourth quarter, the Panthers scored again on a 6-play 55-yard drive featuring a Mc Cray scramble that covered 42 yards, then McCray threw a 15-yard touchdown pass, and the kick by Stockwell cut the Blue Darter lead to 21-14 with 7:35 left in the game.Although they didn’t score, Apopka went on a clock-chewing drive of 12 plays, 70 yards and 5:27 of the clock, which gave the ball back to the Panthers on their own 10-yard line with only 2:08 remaining in the game.Dr. Phillips final drive only got to their own 30-yard line before they gave the ball back on downs and the Blue Darters ran out the clock.Coming into the game, Dr. Phillips (4-2) was ranked #1 in the State Class 8A Associated Press poll, but after a 14-0 loss to Wekiva on Friday, and a 21-14 loss to Apopka, are almost certain to fall. Apopka (ranked #3 in the same poll), after wins over Mandarin on Friday and the Panthers tonight, is almost a certainty to move up.It was a big night for the Blue Darter running game, with Williams running for 123 yards and two touchdowns, and Brown going for 138 yards. In total, Apopka rushed for over 300 yards.The Blue Darters return home Friday night to face district rival West Orange High School. Kickoff is at 7PM. Gov.

(Photo by James Carbone) [Updated]  Archie Barry, identified as the father of a man who was fatally shot by police in Pasadena earlier this month, alleges excessive force was used in the wrongful death of his son in a claim for damages filed against the city, Barry’s lawyers announced Thursday. Other family members filed a separate claim against Pasadena on Thursday, according to their attorney, Caree Harper.Attorney Luis Carrillo, who is representing Barry, said 32-year-old Anthony McClain was unarmed when he was shot by police on the night of Aug. 15 and posed no threat to officers.“We have started the legal process against the city of Pasadena,” Carrillo said during a press conference held Thursday outside Pasadena Police Department headquarters.A claim is a precursor to a lawsuit. According to state law, the city has 30 days to respond to the claim before a formal lawsuit can be initiated.“The officer that shot and killed Anthony McClain clearly did not have any justifiable reason to shoot and kill Anthony McClain,” Carrillo said. “This city does not teach its officers reverence for human life. This officer did not respect Anthony McClain’s life.“This officer cowardly shot Anthony McClain in the back. This city does not train its police officers well,” the attorney continued. “Anthony McClain was no imminent threat to this officer or any officers when he was cowardly shot in the back by this police officer. That officer, that night, was trigger happy.”The claim, filed Wednesday, seeks unspecified damages.The city issued a statement in which it said that “any loss of life is tragic and we extend our heart-felt condolences to the family of Mr. McClain. Incidents such as these have a traumatic impact on the family, our Pasadena community and our dedicated law enforcement personnel.”“We cannot change what has occurred, but we can ensure that this incident will be fully investigated; investigations that are already underway. Additionally, we will initiate an independent, third-party review of this incident that will result in a publically available report. Our community deserves to know more about this incident and we will provide the facts. We understand the urgency and will proceed diligently and with all speed until this important work is done. ”McClain’s father said his son’s death has left him devastated.“This breaks me down to have lost my son like this,” Barry said during the press conference. “I see no reason for this to have happened. I don’t know how I can deal with this.”McClain, a resident of Pasadena, was fatally shot on Aug. 15 during an encounter that stemmed from a traffic stop along North Raymond Avenue, near La Pintoresca Park, Pasadena police said. McClain was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for lack of a front license plate, officials said.After being asked to step out of the car, McClain ran from officers and allegedly pulled a handgun from his waistband, police said.Video of the incident released by police appears to show McClain holding an object in his left hand as he ran from police, but details of the object cannot be clearly seen in the footage. Police have also released video footage that shows McClain tossing an object, which they say was a handgun, across the street.The incident has led to several local protests. The names of the officers involved in the shooting have not been released.So far, a report on McClain’s autopsy has not been released. Police are waiting for the results of DNA analysis on the gun.Attorney Michael Carrillo, Luis Carrillo’s son and a member of the South Pasadena-based Carrillo Law Firm, said police and city officials have released statements and videos regarding the shooting “that totally go against what the actual evidence is.”“They claim that [McClain] was grabbing his waistband, grabbing a gun at the time that he got out of the vehicle. That is totally false,” Michael Carrillo said.Holding up a photograph taken from police body camera footage, Michael Carrillo pointed to an object shaped like the letter “K,” on which McClain’s left hand was resting.“What that is is a Michael Kors belt,” he said, referring to a clothing designer.“All you have to do is go to Anthony McClain’s Facebook page and you’ll see that exact same belt,” Michael Carrillo said, holding up a photo of McClain wearing a belt with a large buckle reading “MK.”The lawyer also disputed the assertion by police that officers recovered a handgun that had been thrown by McClain.“What we’re saying, too, is that we believe that whatever weapon was recovered by the city of Pasadena was not actually Anthony McClain’s,” Michael Carrillo said. “That’s why we’re calling on the [state] Attorney General’s Office to investigate the Pasadena PD and really conduct an independent investigation about the shooting and what happened to Anthony McClain, because what happened to him was wrong and was against the law. Somebody needs to get in here and investigate these officers.”The claim, which alleges civil rights violations and wrongful death, also seeks damages for the loss of Barry’s son, as well as for “the pain and suffering of decedent Anthony McClain that he suffered before his death.”It further alleges the city failed to properly train or screen the involved officers.“The shooting of Decedent Anthony McClain was completely unjustified in that Anthony McClain was unarmed and was not a threat to Pasadena Police Officers,” the claim states.It also states McClain did not receive proper medical care following the shooting.“Pasadena police officers negligently failed to provide necessary medical attention to Anthony McClain after he was shot in the back,” according to the claim. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News The father of Anthony McClain, Archie Barry, talks with the media about filing a legal claim against the City of Pasadena alleging violation of his son’s civil rights announced during a press conference in front of the Pasadena Police Department on Thursday, August 27, 2020.

Research reveals bullying in the NHS

first_imgMore than six in 10 care professionals in the NHS have witnessed bullying inthe workplace and one in 10 now suffer similar symptoms to post-traumaticstress disorder, research finds. A nationwide study shows that over the last two years, 68 per cent of NHShealthcare staff had observed bullying taking place in the course of theirwork. The research, presented to the British Association for Counselling andPsychotherapy, also reveals that 40 per cent of the 165 individuals surveyedhad been bullied themselves. Chartered psychologist Noreen Tehrani, who conducted the research, said itwas possible that care professionals were more vulnerable than others or weremore likely to identify bad behaviour as bullying. Marie Cleary, HR manager at Poole Hospital NHS Trust, said the pro-activeresponse to bullying in the NHS was leading to a rise in the number of reportedcases. “It is an area all trusts are looking at. We needed to find outwhat was happening. We knew numbers would rise slightly but that will levelout,” she said. She added that her trust has introduced more training in the area andencloses a leaflet with every pay packet to encourage staff to report bullyingand harassment.
